One of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. CSNY performed at the old Tampa Stadium in 1974. What do I remember about this show? In the days before laminated passes, Neil Young’s dog was walking around backstage with a laminated photo ID and all access pass hanging from his collar. There was a huge amount of shrimp cocktail offered in the catering tent. I mean really huge. Biggest pile of shrimp I ever saw. Only in Tampa, I guess. The backstage pass (thank you Joe Lambusta, wherever you are) was a little pin-on button with a Joni Mitchell drawing on it that I still have somewhere.
